I’ve been told that clubs are allowed to nominate one “media” person to be present but I’ve not looked into it to see if that’s actually true or not. Regardless of that, media coverage is being inconsistently applied across the country, which is no surprise when the guidance is so muddled.
Looking ahead to when fans are allowed back (and me with them) my main coverage will actually be of Wimborne Town this season, as it ties in with a documentary I’m making which covers their move to the new stadium.
I’ve made myself available to the club for when Wimborne are not at home & have also offered to edit the raw footage if they are only able to find someone to film but, at this moment in time, I believe they will look at tying in with the university again.
I know time marches on but I think that when I left the UK (1967) Wimborne were playing in either Dorset League 5 or something very close to that. PTFC were in the Southern League and the only semi-pro club in the area. Looks like WTFC have a very good purpose built Stadium coming together there. We Live in Hope!! (I am going to be quoting this msg in Jan/.Feb as the postponements roll in) NEVER SAY NEVER!!
Just watched the Weymouth v Poole game online. Poole were terrible, chasing shadowa, no ideas, no shots at goal, giving the ball away. Weymouth were better in all areas of the pitch and winning the ball from Poole players was so easy. Poole's passing was aimless and just hope that it went somewhere and the defending was ****.
Weymouth are 2 divisions above us. You'd expect them to be better than us. To give you an idea of the standard of their squad, two of our best players last season are now at Weymouth and whilst JLS got a run out in the 2nd half, JD did not feature at all despite being there. We matched them well until the first goal went in but that shifted the pressure from them to us and they dropped into cruise mode and looked a very good team. We looked like a team who are in need of a bit of game time; a lot of youngsters who need to bond together with the more senior players. Without seeing any of the other teams in our league I still believe that mid table will probably be our level which would allow the team to consolidate. It looks like the start of a team for the future to me. If we had an away cup tie to a team from 2 divisions higher, we'd probably be disappointed to lose 4 nil but it wouldn't really be unexpected.
watch the game yesterday,i think WEYMOUTH got to be worried more than us,most of the teams in the conference are professional,so i don"t give them much hope.but best off luck to them next season.
We are under no illusions about the task ahead this season. Successive promotions has put us in a place I never expected. We remain part time & to me, avoiding relegation would be a result. We really have nothing to lose. Good luck for the impending season.
